A New Direction

I've had this blog for about 10 months now and over the course of those months, my writing has revolved around my relationship troubles. I updated on no particular schedule, only when I was down-trodden by love or depressed. While I held this blog down, I also managed another blog called A Little Bit of This, A Little Bit of That. I used this blog to help document and assist my journey as an aspiring writer.

Yes, I want to be a writer. That's something I don't think I've ever divulged in this blog before. It has been my passion since the age of six and I've always known that writing was my calling in life. I've written for numerous publication during my high school career, but my goal write now is to become a professional freelance writer, as well as publicize my own column/blog.

Journalism was always the obvious route to go, when I used think of what I'd major in. But once I got to college, something became apparent to me. After taking Journalism 200, where the professors emphasized the whole cut-throat and by-any-means-necessary approach to journalism, I realized that it wasn't for me. While I do enjoy researching, investigating, and writing, which were the original appeal of journalism to me, I don't like the lack of morals that are expected of a journalist. What I enjoy doing is writing about things that I'm already knowledgable in, while researching to know more, and a blog is the best place to do this.

Ever since the beginning of my summer break, I knew that I wanted to start a new blog so that I can hone in my writing skills, and create some sort of portfolio. I had been racking my brain for what I wanted my blog to be about because I had a laundry list of interests that I could write about.

fashion.film.art.writing.blogging.new media.Japanese culture.beauty.makeup.graphic design.italy.travel.books.researching.music.movies.guitars.philosophy.animals.photography.life.people.dreams.forgiveness.happiness.interior design...The list went on for pages.

But then I realized the other night that I already had a topic in which I was intensely interested, and would love to learn more about. And I realized that, in fact, I already had a blog on it.

No, I'm not an expert. And, of course, I'm still learning and growing. But this crazy little thing called love is very intriguing to me, and everything associated with it. So I hope you guys join me in my exploration of what I know.
